"While I’ve been to courses in the past and not come away with anything more than a refresh; this course was basic enough to understand but with great substance. It was interactive which meant individuals could openly discuss what the content meant for them and their industry. By providing a forum for discussion, it also provided a great opportunity to gain the professional insight from Tom Murrell himself, but on an individual level."
